Phineas Taylor Barnum was born on July 5, 1810 in the city of Bethel, Connecticut. He wasn't always the famous American showman, as most people know him. In 1834 Barnum moved to New York City where he experimented with a variety of jobs. He tried selling hats and caps, running a boardinghouse, and working in a grocery store each unsuccessful. Barnum began to write. He wrote of his perilous adventures among wild men, showing how wild beasts are captured and menageries are made. Barnum was involved in things other than his circus. In 1865, Barnum was elected to the Connecticut legislature and led a fight against the railroad lobby during his first term, which turned out to be successful. From 1875 to 1876 he served as mayor for Bridgeport. Barnum was married and sadly his bride died in 1873. In 1874 he was remarried to an English woman. Barnum died in Bridgeport on April 7, 1891
